Michael Young Requests Trade, We Request 5th Starter

A 4th starter would be nice too

So those Michael Young rumors which seemed ludicrous at first suddenly have some substance to them as he has requested a trade after bristling at the idea of a position change. Young is a poor defensive SS, despite his recent Gold Glove win, and carries a prohibitively large contract.

If we're to believe Kenny Williams that the Sox are bumping up against their payroll ceiling, I don't think there's any reasonable way to make a payroll neutral trade for Young that will make the '09 club better. Nevertheless, with multiple outlets reporting on the Sox interest, and Williams propensity to surprise, I'm obligated to make a post about it.
